Male Blazer Size Chart – Blazer and jacket for men Fit Guide

Choose the correct male blazer for your outfit. Read through our male blazer size chart and jackets for men size guide. A blazer is a  type or style of jacket that is worn by men, it has a tailored body fit and can be single or double-breasted.

Be the man of style and elegance, go out with the best blazer!

A male blazer should fit well across the shoulders with no extra fabric pulling at the seams (larger size can ruin your outfit). The sleeves should end just past your wrist bone with about half an inch to an inch of shirt cuff showing beneath. The body of the blazer should be close-fitting but not tight, with no pulling across the chest or stomach. 

When it comes to men’s clothing, a blazer is one of the most useful pieces. Whether you’re going to a formal occasion or going out and just want to wear something different from your day-to-day apparel and wish to complement it with your pair of pants, a good blazer will never fail you. However, before buying one make sure that you know what size fits best and is perfect for your body type. 

How to Pick the Best Blazer for You?

How do i know my Blazer size as a man?

Your blazer size will be perfect if you feel comfortable and it will support your range of motion because, as a man, you tend to move more often.

The best way to find your jacket size is by measuring yourself, make sure that you take all measurements in inches (if you like, you may take it in cm) and if possible have someone else do it for accurate sizing. Make sure that you wear a shirt when doing this because it will allow the tailor working on your blazer or suit a better understanding of where the shoulder seams should fall.

How to measure men’s jacket blazer size?

When taking the measurement, take note of the following body dimensions:

Chest measurement

Measure around the fullest part of your chest, keeping the tape parallel to the ground

Sleeve Length

Measure from the center back of your neck to your wrist bone with your arm hanging naturally by your side

Shoulder Width

Measure from one shoulder tip to another across your back

Jacket Length

Measure from the base of neck (where the spine meets your skull) to where you want the jacket to end, usually just below the hipbone

Now that you have all your measurements, compare them with the size chart (regular sizes for men) below to find your perfect blazer size. Choose the closest measurements to your actual body measurement (make sure to use the tape measure correctly).

What Are The Types of Male Blazer?

In the selection of blazers, you’ll first need to decide what style will suit you best. There are two main styles: single-breasted and double-breasted.

Single-breasted blazers have one row of buttons (the popular ones are golden buttons) and are the most versatile style. Most contemporary tailored jackets are single-breasted, perhaps because this style is easier to wear and suits almost all shapes and sizes. They are sleek, modern, and stylish. 

Double-breasted blazers have two rows of buttons and are more formal than single-breasted jackets. Modern double-breasted jackets are narrow at the waist and are usually longer than the single-breasted ones. Double-breasted ones are classic, vintage, and elegant.

What Are The Excellent Fabrics for a Blazer?

After you’ve decided on the style, you’ll need to choose the color and fabric. The colors available are practically endless, so take your time in choosing something that will match the other clothes in your wardrobe. 

Blazers work for many occasions and knowing which fabric to use will help your man look distinguished. Fabrics also come in many different varieties, so you can find one that is perfect for your climate, activities, and any casual occasion.

Worsted wool is one type of popular blazer fabric but it tends to make the blazer look like a formal jacket without pants. Serge is next and it brings more of a military influence to its style and looks. Next is cashmere which presents the wearer with a very luxurious look, one that may hide his status in society by making it appear greater than it really is. Flannel is made from wool or cotton and can give you breathable comfort.

Finally, there is fresco. A rarely used fabric but it is great when the hot weather arrives in your geographical location.

Besides the ones we have already mentioned, there is a poly blend that makes certain casual blazer styles look elegant. It is crease-resistant and holds its shape well. Viscose and wool are two of the fabrics in this blend.

Then there is hopsack which is like satin. It is not fabric or fiber but a weaving style. This weave makes the fabric more breathable and easier to wear on hot days. With its relaxed drape and wrinkle-resistant nature it is a good blazer to wear on all occasions.

Conclusion

No wardrobe is complete without a casual blazer as it is primal apparel. A blazer can be dressed up or down and is an essential component of any man’s closet. It symbolizes sophistication and offers a chance to showcase a personal style.

A blazer should be chosen – not simply for its superior fit or luxurious touch – but also for the fabric from which it was crafted and is made fit for comfort. Always remember that you have the freedom to choose as they come in dynamic sizes and standard sizes.
